Intelligent Designer

He is straight man with a sense of style that makes some women gush. His trademark glasses and wry sense of humor make him like a male version of Edith Head, if she designed lights and sets. Having worked on the designs of several Rorschach shows David Ghatan is one of those designers who keeps saying yes to us and we are all the richer for it (Not monitarily but spiritually, yeah, definetly spriritually). Having worked on the sets of Ubu Roi and Master and Margarita. The lights for Family Stories and The Scarlet Letter. And the double duty of lights and sets for The Beard of Avon. David Ghatan everyone!
